McGill Law Journal Podcast: Privacy and Government surveillance

Has Canada achieved the right balance between protecting the state’s national security interest and respecting the legitimate privacy expectations of Canadians?

I recently contributed with Professor Vincent Gautrais (Université de Montréal) to a McGill Law Journal Podcast on the topic of government surveillance. The podcast entitled “Vie privée sous surveillance” (French only) discusses state surveillance in Canada and its impact on the right to privacy.

The recent government bills C-13 An Act to amend the Criminal Code, the Canada Evidence Act, the Competition Act and the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Act and S-4, An Act to amend the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and to make a consequential amendment to another Act or “Digital Privacy Act” are discussed.
